Dying Light 2 is Techland’s sequel to their open-world zombie action game that was launched back in 2015, and it received yet another setback. Techland stated that Dying Light 2 won’t make its initially scheduled release period of spring 2020.
The unfortunate announcement was made public via the official Dying Light Twitter account
Here is what Pawel Marchewka, Techland CEO, stated:
“We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfill our vision.”
Unfortunately, the statement had no trace of a new time frame for the launch of the upcoming Dying Light game, as Marchewka said that the company “will have more details to share in the coming months.”
Techland previously made it clear that they are aiming to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generation game. At the moment it is in development on PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
Something’s in the air
January was a tough month for gamers, who were met with delays for big titles like Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Marvel’s Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077 and even Marvel’s Iron Man VR. Unlike Techland, the publishers of the aforementioned games were relatively close to meeting their schedule given the fact that they were able to provide concrete revised release dates. It’s believed that we will be able to play Dying Light 2 in June.
